WELCOME TO THE SAGE GROUSE PROJECT SUBMITTAL SITE

This application allows proponents to submit project information for any new activities proposed in sage grouse habitats designated as core (blue), general (green), or connectivity (light-blue) habitats. For program details please visit our FAQ page or select one of the topics below.

HOW TO SUBMIT A PROJECT FOR CONSULTATION REVIEW

Complete Steps 1 through 4 on the left. Click the Submit button at the bottom. If you are submitting geospatial data or project narrative descriptions separately, you will be redirected to the State of Montana File Transfer Service after you click Submit.

HOW TO SPEED UP THE REVIEW PROCESS

Submit geospatial data with the exact perimeter (footprint) of your project area. Your DDCT calculation will be based on the data you submit, so accuracy is important. Failure to provide geospatial data will cause delays. You may still receive a project confirmation number, but program staff will have to contact you to obtain the geospatial data, causing delays. Submit geospatial data in Step 2 by:

  1. Drawing: Use the +/- button in the upper left corner to zoom into your location in greater detail. Your submitted project location will be more accurate. Change the base map using the Switch Basemap button. Click either the Polygon or Polyline button and use your mouse to draw your project area (Polygon) or a line (Polyline). To complete the polygon, do not overlap or cross any lines. You must double-click your mouse to complete your drawing and then select your project type from the list provided.
  2. Uploading Geospatial Data Files: Select Yes. PDF maps or images (jpg, png, gif, tiff) are not accepted as geospatial data. After clicking the Submit button in Step 4, you will be redirected to the State of Montana File Transfer Service.

Provide complete project information in Step 2 by typing in the text box or upload project descriptions and related information separately using the same process as for geospatial data.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

The proponent will receive an automated email with a confirmation number. Save the email and refer to this number when contacting the program. Program staff will review the information submitted and may contact the proponent or even the permitting agency for additional information.

After completing its review, the program will mail a written letter to the proponent. The proponent should include this letter with any correspondence or application submitted to a permitting agency.
